The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 14-stage theater, a 30-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast -- all rolled into one non-stop, day-long family adventure!
It is an outdoor event that combines entertainment and wares reminiscent of what may have been found in a 16th Century European village market celebrating the arrival of the King to their shire. Walk through our gates to be transported back to a simpler more jovial time.
Mingle with over 2,000 costumed characters, eat a giant roasted turkey leg; take part in games of chance and skill. Explore the Village! Browse through 200 artisan shops displaying their wares; Watch as the ancient skills of glassblowing, leatherwork, weaving, woodcarving, blacksmithing, candlemaking and pottery are displayed...IT IS A SHOPPER'S PARADISE!
